there is a link here (main menu) for downloading Linux. You can also find links to all the major distributions at
Common advice is to start with anything in the top ten on the "hit list" at distrowatch----exception: Arch is not recommended for beginners

the generic procedure:

Download an ".iso" disk image
Burn to CD
Boot from the CD
Follow the on-screen instructions

hi shud and welcome to the forums!

first of all, since the Linux-distro-world is soooo vast, you need to tell us what do you use your computer for: working, graphical processing, browsing the internet and watching multimedia content, gaming, etc..., so we can address you properly.
For example, what is the result of this test??

Have fun with Linux!
